WWII vet calls Bush on war comparisons

Ahhhhh, good to see 'em still kicking ass sixty years later-- it's just a shame that the fascists are right here this time. Crooks and Liars has the clip, from Neil Cavuto's Fox News show:

Video- (3.2 megs) Video-QT

The veteran, one Tom Mahoney, socks it to GOP pundits everywhere, one talking point at a time:

* "There's no comparison to any part of World War II"

* ". . .if you didn't participate, you shouldn't talk about it. If you didn't get out there with the men, don't take it second hand we're winning."

* Does Mahoney believe that we're doing a just and noble thing in Iraq? "No, I really don't."

Wow. Talk about must-watch TV. Could Cavuto come across as any more patronizing? What a schmuck.
